Ok i thought i had ruined my soap. I used 'ohhappyday''s tute and a recipe i found on an Aussie site (meant i knew what things i could find here and measurments). I did it all up and measured very carefully.
All went good, lol i even got to trace which i was excited to see and know i knew what it was
. Poured it into my mold (need to work on lining it a bit neater i think!) put into the oven on really low for a few hours turned it off and left it in there overnight. Lol chasing anyone who went near the over "DONT OPEN THE OVEN, I DONT CARE YOU WANT TO COOK DINNER!!" haha.
But when i had a look with the oven light on i was totally down, it was all crusty and gritty on the top, nothing like other yummy soap tops i have seen on here. I left it in there and was all upset.
Got up this morning and thought ok, ill get it out and cut it up, if its saveable ill try to rebatch it. But i cut it and the only yuck bit was the very top. I think the oven may have been a little warm. But it worked
I cut it up and trimmed the top and it works amazingly. (i used the end off cut cause i didnt want to ruin a nice square bit haha) I dont even need to moisturise my hands after washing them now. Gosh what a difference handmade soap makes. I didnt realise it would be so good. I did it cause i thought it would be fun, lol and for the soap, but was unsure how nice a soap i made myself would turn out. haha lets just say i am a little chuffed with myself today
This is the top, Not sure if you can see the grittiness of the top or not. But you can see its not really smooth.
This is the finished product
Lol and one of my son posing with the soap, haha he was so excited mummy acutally made real soap
If anyone has any ideas why my soap went crusty on top id love to know. Im thinking it was the oven temp. Next time i think ill just wait the month to use it... haha if i can.
Thanks again to OhHappyDay for the tute!! Your a gem!!
